After over twenty years of teaching, and especially after taking a hard look at the realities of budget cuts and jobs losses in education, Milam decided she needed to do more to make a difference in student achievement by pursuing National Board Certification in Library Media, a qualification held by less that 1,100 media specialists. Using a unique journal process, she describes the steps toward certification, including understanding the qualifications, the Five Core Propositions of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, reflective practice and the evidence of accomplishment. She describes the uniqueness of the process, useful web sites, the means of defining accomplishment, time management and organization, obtaining support, producing quality videotapes, and techniques for preparing portfolios, including writing styles, instructional collaboration, appreciation of literature, integrating technology, and documented accomplishments. She concludes with tips for after the scores are announced, including continued professional growth and ethics considerations.
